SCVMM 2016 - Bare Metal Deployment in a disjointed namespace fails

Occasional Visitor



I have problems to run a bare metal deployment of a Hyper-V host successfully with SCVMM 2016 in a disjointed namespace infrastructure.The domain suffix differs from the dns suffix, for e.g. domain suffix: contoso.local but dns suffix:

Within the bare metal process the SCVMM management server tries to connect to the host by the fqdn but the dns record is So the bare metal process gets a timeout after a while and finishes unsuccessfully.

Currently the only way is to configure a record in the local hosts file of the SCVMM 2016 management server. But I can't image that this the preferred solution.

Can anybody help?
